uncomfort to keep on top of the competition everything here has been renovated faster ski lifts for example and this trendy new restaurant right at the summit. and from here you can see that switch bits of germany say hi dismount and area that's what's critical and alex is local to the area and tells me there's even some glacier lift up there. skiing and other winter sports are great way of enjoying nature and there's even some fascinating wildlife can be found here in the mountains if you know where to look. far away from the crowded slopes it can get a bit lonely. as the winter day breaks a two thousand meters in the hidden reaches of the alps only a few creatures are stirring
5:42 am
to catch sight of them biologist heading there to spend the night at the mental home large. you may have to get ready and suit up for the climb right. heading is the warden for the al gore high alps reserve. he's studying to learn about the most important event in their lives this is their mating season the kids will be born in may and have the alpine summer to get their climbing legs . after four hours his efforts a reward it close to the summit he spots a female with a kid right behind her is the male hoping to meet. what all watch closely. now is moving again. i think it's
5:43 am
incredible that these animals live at such high altitude. they have so little to eat for those will be just the dried up grasses of a daughter and that's enough to get them through the winter and also to commit the common. a second male has picked up the female scent. the males use their magnificent horns more for symbolic battles to place them in the pecking order. this interaction amounts to nothing more than a threatening gesture or two but for the victor it was all for nothing mating season or not she's just not interested here and it's made such a fantastic experience to be a guest here in this realm. and to see what a fragile system it is where the animals can run into trouble so easily and
5:44 am
a rare snow grows called atomic and shows up another expert at surviving the harsh winter conditions. they're only a few hundred termagant in the bavarian alps far away from humans they stay here high in the mountains where in winter they almost have the place all to themselves . hello. i've come to meet me kindly agreed to show us around this alpine launch the at one point stiles is over one hundred thirty years old ts has been the lease holder since two thousand and fifteen. it's nice and warm here and just as large is one of several hundred owned by the german l. plan cook they provide high altitude services to hikers and skiers. is it always this busy at this time yes. guests at this large can also stay overnight in basic accommodation i'll just scooted near.
5:45 am
yes you can why did you lisa lauch here on the mountain and then i grew up in august off and i've always been interested in doing something like this so when i heard it was a release again i just applied it. to a teacher says you make it sound easy but we are at two thousand meters altitude you can't carry up everything you need can you. have to plan a little differently if you run out of something you can't run to the store. we can only bring up supplies in the cable car on certain days. you learn these things. for example at high altitude water boils faster but pastor takes longer to cook. once the fascination of being up here. when you see the sunset in the evening and have this view every day. now that i live up here. there are mornings when i take
5:46 am
pictures just because i still love it. and it's still something special to me. i went skiing myself and saw lots of people on the ski lift to what extent is nature suffering under the tourism can the to co-exist. yeah. well i wouldn't say it's overcrowded. there are lots of mountains around here where you don't see any people at all winter or summer. soon as you walk over the next hill you can't see any of it. so i think it's fine that people get the opportunity to enjoy all this. now we're in winter but honestly what's the best season to be up here design. and summer post definitely have their advantages. in summer you're free to go anywhere you want. in winter you can go skiing and
5:47 am
enjoy the snowy countryside so they're both good on what is your favorite time to be here more like the before and after the seasons because i've got the mountain to myself and i can do my own thing all right then thanks sure most people like holiday destinations best when there are few other tourists around apart from themselves if that's the case then it's best to travel out of season and that's exactly what you're about to do now an hour your travel slot you'll see how beautiful the coastal town of brighton and south england can be if specially in winter. early morning in brighton it's quiet in winter time even around the famous brighton beach. locals like jeremy sanders enjoy the off season most of the resorts eight million annual visitors show up in summer. i would
5:48 am
recommend when you can get around a lot quicker. and it can be quite warm down here some days if if you get a sheltered spot on the page it can be chorusing. brighton is known to britain says london by the sea the seaside resort of a quarter million people is known for its many little boutique shops like the chocolate maker jockey will he do the half with his hand made chocolate sculptures . right is really special because there's so many independent stores in brighton. because all the premises are quite small and. it's it's really good for individual seemed to come out and and really sort of shine. one of britain's landmarks is the grand eccentric royal pavilion with its indian style architecture king george the fourth at the residence converted into an oriental palace in the early nineteenth
5:49 am
century. lol. this palace in particular is the best expression of how he was and he was he was a king who lived life to the extreme. right and has a lively music and art scene the town street art includes works by graffiti artist banksy. his painting of the kissing campers now surviving on. he has a copy is world famous. after london brightness the second time his concentration of restaurants in britain. two years ago sixty four degrees was named the city's best dining establishment. and of course there's always the beach and the sea a beautiful place to spend an evening.
5:50 am
that traction other way came for people to come down here because they say the memorized sions of the stalins but there was a come down to see this incredible sunsets as well. of course there are other winter sports on offer in the algo else besides skiing and snowboarding and alex is going to show me one. so this is an alternative to skiing is it more fun or less easier or harder what should i watch for. is basically it's like riding a bike but with one main difference we have no brakes. but still we have to slow down either by digging our heels into the snow. or by curving back and forth like whiskey well you know how to ski now. and we go.
